As an aside, was there a time when 7800 systems and games were being clearanced for dirt cheap at Toys r Us and Kay-Bee? I certainly do not remember seeing this in my area.

My family was poor, no doubt about it. VCS hit shelves fall of 1977, and I finally weaseled one from my dad for Christmas 1981. Four years after the fact, I finally got Atari. I remember going to my uncle's house (he always got the latest gadgets) for Christmas of 1977 and watching them play their new VCS. They had pinball, and Asteroids, and I longed to play. No dice. I was 12, old enough to do it no harm, but they did not let me play their new Atari. When I finally got my own 4 long years later, I savored it.
